Mount Vernon, Washington D.C.: 12 reviews and 24 photos
On the estate of Mount Vernon, you'll find the tomb of George and Martha Washington. It's interesting to note that this area was mutually considered a neutral location by Union and Confederate troops as the American Civil War raged all around. The tomb was built exactly to the specifications outlined in George Washington's will. Surrounding columns commemorate other members of the Washington family.
